Designed with the avid traveller and Air Canada passenger in mind, the new American Express Aeroplan Cards offer unique value for the frequent flyer, business traveller or even the occasional vacationer. Offered in conjunction with Air Canada’s recently transformed Aeroplan program, the Cards’ rich travel rewards combined with accelerated points on everyday spending like dining and food delivery, enable Cardmembers to reap the benefits of the new program right from the start and allow them to earn points quickly for their future travel plans.

“Whether it is a weekend getaway or a dream vacation, travel has become a big part of so many people’s lives,” says Megan McKee, Vice President and General Manager, Consumer Products and Partnerships at American Express Canada. “Earning extra points when you use your Card on both Air Canada bookings and on everyday categories like take-out, food delivery, or hotel and car rental makes this suite of Cards the choice for now and for the future.”

Currently, new Cardmembers can take advantage of rich welcome offers of up to 65,000 bonus points to help them build up their points balance even faster. Select Cardmembers can also earn a $100 statement credit or an Air Canada bonus Buddy Pass after meeting the necessary spend requirements. Those who previously joined the waitlist are eligible to receive a special bonus of up to 10,000 Aeroplan points once approved – making them eligible for up to 75,000 Aeroplan points in total.

The Cards boast travel and lifestyle related benefits, including Air Canada travel benefits such as an eligible Free First Checked Bag, Maple Leaf Lounge Access, and Priority Airport Services like Priority Boarding. These extensive travel benefits are complemented by a range of Amex benefits to elevate the airport experience at Toronto Pearson Airport on select Cards, and offer access to entertainment, dining, wellness and retail events through American Express® Experiences including virtual events to enjoy from home and early access to tickets through Front Of The Line®. Existing AeroplanPlus Platinum and Reserve Cardmembers are also eligible for a special offer as a thank you for their continued Cardmembership to further elevate their first year with the new Card.

Three new American Express Aeroplan Cards are available to consumers and small business owners – the American Express Aeroplan Card, American Express Aeroplan Reserve Card, and the American Express Aeroplan Business Reserve Card. American Express will continue to be the only Aeroplan-issuing partner to offer American Express Aeroplan Corporate

Travel: Redesigned boutique hotel now open in West Lafayette | Lifestyles – Travel

Throughout the hotel are Boilermaker touches, including the school crest embedded into carpeting in the public spaces and on pillows in the rooms, historic photos hanging above the beds and tartan prints. The lobby has a very cool bookcase design above the front desk with rotating black and white photos projected onto it, and there are several cozy nooks to have a seat and relax. I love the stylish room decor and luxurious in-room touches like comfy robes, Pharmacopia products (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion) and Caribou Coffee. Rooms feature WiFi, mini fridges and large flatscreen TVs.

We took a walk on the second floor beyond the hotel into the Purdue Memorial Union, which has stunning architectural features and busts of past presidents, along with an information desk with campus maps and information on the area.

Within the hotel are three dining options, and my husband and I had the opportunity to experience each one while we were there. A little bit after checking in we had a reservation for dinner at 8Eleven, the hotel’s full-service restaurant that is named to honor two NASA missions: Gemini 8 and Apollo 11 — both commanded by Purdue alumnus Neil Armstrong. Described as their “refined and sophisticated gathering spot,” the French-American bistro has an open kitchen concept and an impressive menu.

It was difficult making a decision on what to order. We started with oysters and gulf shrimp cocktail, and it was immediately apparent that everything is top-quality. For entrees, we decided on the halibut with heirloom tomatoes, fennel, lemon and sweet pepper and that evening’s special, the Filet Oscar — a medium filet mignon with lump crab, covered in Hollandaise sauce over asparagus. It was phenomenal, and our meal earned a spot as one of my favorite eateries in the state. I never expected to enjoy seafood that good in a small Midwest college town.
